I've got my memories and the Tom stuff, +44, AVA, etc. Anything they do going forward I could give a fuck about.
Nothing about them excites me or interests me. Their time is over.
Sadly, this is where I'm going as well. Its shocking, considering how anti-Tom / Anti-AVA I was for so long, but I genuinely just struggle to be comfortable with current blink-182.
and thats actually understandable - it isn't meant for me. They've worked very hard at aiming 'new' blink at the younger demographics again and I no longer fit into that world, so I can't really expect their music to cater to me anymore.
+44 and self titled, neighbourhoods and AVA were nice because they were accessible regardless of age. California is not, and if thats the money-centred direction they will continue with, then I'm too old for it. simple as that.
This is also why this morning, when tickets went on sale, I saw the cost, politely said "Are you kidding? thats a weeks food shopping! how ridiculous!" and confirmed for myself that I will never see blink-182 live. and I'm okay with that.
